Public Speaking Course: 

COOL COLOR COMMENTARY

In my public speaking course you will learn that different colors can be used in your presentation to convey a certain meaning or get a reaction.

Flip Chart Color
Here are some tips when you are using a flip chart.

=> Do not do the whole chart in red ink.

=> Avoid purple ,brown ,pink and yellow inks.

=> Blue, black and green inks have the greatest visibility.

=> Blue is the most pleasing color to look at with red coming in second
(note: pleasing to look at and visibility are not the same)

=> Permanent markers give the most vivid color but dry out faster if
you leave the cap off. They also frequently bleed thru to the next
page. Forget trying to get the ink out of your clothes, its pointless.

=> Water colors aren't as bright and squeak when you write. The ink will wash
out of your clothing.

Use Color Thoughtfully
In my public speaking course, I show you how to catch people's eyes by...

=> Using bright colors for small graphics to make them stand out.

=> Using subtle colors for large graphics so they don't overwhelm.

Use Color Psychologically
In my public speaking course, I show you how to influence people's minds by choosing the right colors.

According to Greg Bandy in Multimedia Presentation Design, certain colors evoke certain emotions.

=> PURPLE = Regal, Mysterious

=> GREEN = Organic, Healthy, New life, Go, Money

=> ORANGE /YELLOW = Sunny, Bright, Warm

=> RED = Brutal, Dangerous, Hot, Stop!

=> DARK BLUE = Stable, Trustworthy, Calm

=> LIGHT BLUE = Cool, Refreshing

=> GRAY = Integrity, Neutral, Mature

=> WHITE (if I make the example white you couldn't see it) = Pure,
Hopeful, Clean

=> BLACK = Serious, Heavy, Profitable, Death

Remember that colors can be used to influence as well as look nice.
